Lee County Fire Investigators are trying to find out what caused a mobile home to go up in flames, leaving a family without a place to live.

The fire happened just before midnight on Saturday.  Debra Cone says she and her husband ran a quick errand and returned to find their mobile home in Weslo Retirement Estates Village in Leesburg up in flames.

Investigators say they believe the fire began in the kitchen area. The family has insurance and hopes to find a new place to live by next week.

"We just turned the corner and we saw flames shooting out of the top of the roof  and we had to call the fire department because it was on fire, it was just blazing out Last night," said Cone.

The Red Cross put the family up at the Comfort Inn. They will be staying there again Sunday night.
